YOUR HOME INSURANCE POLICY

This is your RSA Home Insurance Policy. It describes the contract between you and us. In return
for the premium, we will cover you during the period of insurance under the terms set out in this
policy.

Your application form, this policy book, and your schedule are all part of your policy. Please
read them all to avoid misunderstanding. They tell you which sections apply to your policy and
describe your cover.

The declaration you signed on your application form is part of this contract. You must tell us as
soon as possible of any changes to the information you have given on your application form. If
you do not, your policy may not be valid.

We will not pay benefits or arrange for help if any part of your application for this insurance, or
any further changes you ask to make to this policy, are deliberately fraudulent.

Please make sure that your policy is what you want. If it is not, tell us immediately. If you return it
to us within 30 days we will not charge you provided you have not made a claim during the trial
period.

CHANGES IN CIRCUMSTANCES
The policy provides the circumstances in which you can make a claim. Whilst the home insurance
cover is wide, it is not a maintenance contract and does not protect you or your household
against wear, tear or deterioration. You must write to us, at the address shown on your schedule,
within 14 days if your address or the sum insured specified in your Policy Schedule has changed.

CANCELLING YOUR POLICY
If you wish to cancel your policy for any reason deemed fit, a written notice of atleast 7 days is
required by us. You will receive a pro-rata refund of the premium for any unexpired period of
cover.

In the event of not receiving your premium or for any other reason deemed fit, we may cancel
this policy by giving you at least 30 days notice at your last known address.

If no claim is made or will arise, we will give you a refund on your premium for any remaining
period of cover subject to a small administration fee. If a claim is made or will arise, we will not
give you a refund on your premium.

We reserve the right to amend premiums and policy terms, conditions, exclusions and
endorsements.
